[Openstack] running control plane on a vmware VM

You will need to set your switches to promiscuous mode. This is due to the fact that the traffic will be using MAC addresses from OpenStack and not the VMware ones.

Subject: [Openstack] running control plane on a vmware VM

Hi all,

I deployed openstack on a vmware vm using kolla-ansible. The installation was successful but my router namespace cannot ping the internet and I don’t know why.

I checked with the openstack IRC channel and my guess is that vmware is blocking the traffic from the quantum gateway but I don’t know how to prove this.

Am I doing something stupid by running the control plane on a vmware vm? Has anyone done this before? How can I troubleshoot deeper so I can prove my theory?

Thank you very much
